place name. Gochressiel

Earliest name of S. Crissaegrim from Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (LR/285, 301). In The Etymologies, it was marked as Danian and contained the element Dan. hrassa “precipice” (Ety/KHARÁS), where the older “ch” [x] did not [[dan|become [h] because it was not an initial consonant]], and the [[dan|[a] was mutated to [e] by the following [i]]] in the suffix -iel. The [a] also appeared unmutated in the shorter form Gochrass. The meanings of the prefix go- and suffix -iel are unclear.
